harshed everyone’s mellow

Suffering a minor inconvenience today I was reminded of a phrase that I read last year as part of a newspaper article.  I occasionally search for articles on surfing which might not be picked up by the surf media and then tweet about them on the inkydeep twitter page.

The article was about surfers being successful in stopping expanded repairs to a wall which would have impacted one of their local breaks; Ruggles, in Newport, Rhode Island.  The article titled “Surf fans win fight to stop Newport wall” was published in April 2013 in the Boston Globe;

“For weeks, the city has seen a growing swell of opposition to a state proposal to repair the walk in a way that residents said could have permanently altered the break of the waves, threatened undersea life, ruined the surfing, and harshed everyone’s mellow.”

It was the phrase “harshed everyone’s mellow” that caught my attention which I think would sit quite comfortably alongside other surfer slang and sayings; for example, when dropped in on, your response could be “Hey dude!, your harshing my mellow!”

Surfing Magazine’s Flipbooks

The recent article “I Am Very Mad At The Internet” in Surfing Magazine is a reminder of the wonderful flipbooks produced by the magazine.

The 2014 J-Bay Open Flipbook: “Where The Wild Things Are” is another excellent edition of the free flipbooks and a great record of the J-Bay event.

The Best Mentawai Islands Surf Video by Paul Borrud. Published 26 June 2014 on Vimeo.
“In June of 2014, we spent 11 days surfing the Mentawai Islands. The conditions were perfect the entire trip with light offshore winds and plenty of swell to go around. I was able to capture some pretty interesting angles using Phyllis (name of my drone). Enjoy the highlights of our trip and experience the beauty of the Islands from above. Music by Mashti, Mapusa from the Album Danish Delights.”
